I've already begun working on a spread sheet for a build similar to this....only difference in mine is larger injectors and a 255 pump for E85 still under $2,500

The blocks are fine, it's the internals that can become an issue.


Easy to fab a turbo setup without an engine bay is all I'll say about this pipe dream build.

Rob and I were discussing this today. Keep in mind that that engine ran those numbers on a dyno with no drive accessories attached and no driveline. So the numbers are a bit skewed to the high side.

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...
Air silencer delete, warp drive, dilithium crystals, flux capacitor, Slingshot Rubber band power adder, Moonshine & Gas, Leaf Blower Supercharger, Hamster Wheel & Hamster, Energizer Bunny generating 1.21 gigawatts, Mr. FusionŽ Home Energy Reactor, hover conversion and a sextant celestial navigation system (The original GPS)
Best 1/4: 1,320 nanoseconds @ 670,616,629.2 miles per hour
